“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

Who gets to be a member of the military?
Does homosexuality equal immorality?
It was a bad idea to institute this ban
Lie to conceal our orientation

The time has come to review
You don’t have a right to exclude
Most young people simply don’t care
So why must Gays lie to their peers?

Concerned and anxious about this change
Besides, can you define “openness?”
It’s not a Pink Military or a Gay Pride float
It doesn’t hurt units or the people I know

Policy based on nothing – prejudice and fear
I..? You. What we think really matters
Let’s talk about what the military means
And a roadmap for lifting this ban

Society shouldn’t impose this on us
Admirals, Generals are out of touch
Does it mean being anti-gay?
It’s past its time of necessity

Artist Statement

Corporate guy, Big man
I do not fit the convention

I’m risk taking, life changing
I’ll give you a broader vision

From pure emotion, to the lyrics I spit
I charm the animals like Orpheus

It isn’t just an afterthought
yayaya just appreciate my art

I’m doing what I want to do
Life is Life. I represent you

Past. Present. And the ties between
To be human and what it means

Virtual catalyst for discussion
Besides not denigrating anyone

Inspired by people from all walks of life
Acceptance? It was safer to keep quiet!

Rio

My mind is filled with silvery stars
Musical staves and boulevards
Emerald green on silver-gilt
In every word and every note
Speak to me flat or sharp
The sublime, it becomes art
I’m not in the mood for sleep now
Oh, maybe a lil’ LOL
The bright fluorescent in my room
I’ll do my best. I might have known
Patterned pavements. Royal Palms
Mosaics and boulevards
Hell yeah, I’m so effing psyched
Band of flowers captures the light
I can’t fight this anymore
Finished, I have to move forward
Speak to me flat or sharp
Music. Why don’t you start?

:twisted:

r u a cobra in coil
Sheathed in smooth scales?
Slithery creature
Do u believe dat ur real?

Hood half spread, u hiss and spit
Usually shy and nonagressive
Fearful under ur swaying glare
Retract again in the hot clear air

Crawl, climb, coil, crush
u cant swallow me head first
Slinking over the desert sand
Save ur venom, im not ur man

it’s gonna be epic!

This time tomorrow life shall be grand
Oh, we shall all be drunken friends!

What will we do on this fateful eve?
Exchange pleasantries, go somewhere cheap?

Rocking out to whatever’s on
80’s and 90’s metal/pop songs?

Chilling out at a club
ZOMG you totally should!

Or eat, drink and play Wii
Best way to celebrate anything!

Looking forward to shenanigans?
Seriously though, that’s a plan!

The city, the Valley will be packed
We all know the party’s where you’re at!

amazes me…

Stuffed kitten from a crane machine
A pair of knitted socks
Crappy mini suitcase
Full of crappy make-up

Screen printed puppies
On a yellow pullover
ahem…noooooooooooo
From a 99 cent store

Christmas parties suck for me
My friends all get me chocolate
One ‘gift set’ of toiletries
Nasty and caustic

Secret Santa Party
Ho-ho-hold on one second
Best part of December
But books aren’t presents!
